I hope that students, faculty, visitors will come here, listen to the audio clips, watch his videos and imbibe at least some of his qualities.”
Dr Sunil Kant Munjal said that , “Dr. Munjal drew his lessons from the only University that matters – the University of Life. Values like intellectual curiosity, a capacity to inspire, and a desire to create social impact shaped his character and influenced his life; and these form the educational basis of the BML Munjal University. I am happy that we could dedicate two important things to students – a Center of Excellence to get inspired from and new infrastructure to hone and sharpen skills.”
